In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies.

This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
